Here's my fairly simplistic version on Marvin Gayes' whats going on.
I tried a new chording diagram, but I also gave the chords tab directly
under it in case you can't figure it out.
Remember to play these chords loosely and kind of funky, and feel free
to use a CAPO if you want to change the key.

Ohhh, but who are they to judge us, simply 'cause our hair is long
             [Em7]                           [A13sus4]        [A13]
You know we've got to find a way, To bring some understanding here today

Wow, this is a really good version of this song - I will really have to practice this because I'm not good at playing these chords yet - but they sound great.
